  • Workmen and students (left) pose for the customary group portrait, this time on the grand stairway which was partially uncovered and cemented. The workers, natives of nearby Tlacalula, are themselves one of the most interesting aspects of work at Yagul. All understand Zapoteco; those of middle age usually speak it among themselves, although the younger men seem to prefer Spanish. After four seasons, they have lost much of their former reserve toward the archeologists. Few of them have worked all four seasons with the MCC crews, but everyone in Tlacalula knows all about the American visitors by now, and acquaintance with local custom is fuller and easier to achieve than before.
  • The small urn below, shown almost natural size, was placed as an offering at the door of a Mixtec tomb in Yagul. It is of polished brown ware with graphite decoration. and probably represents an opossum. At left, a set of rare jeweled teeth was found in this year's work. The obsidian insets are placed in sockets drilled with such precision that no decay has taken place around them.
  • Vice president and Mrs. John V. Elmendorf, visiting during the excavations, have a look at one of the tombs at Yagul. At left is John Paddock, director of the project.
  • Pedro Antonio is one of the masons who worked on the reconstructions at YaguI. At right, he is shown placing a stone in a building which is to be restored. Above, holding his daughter, he adopts the fierce frown which rural Mexicans favor for portraits.
